Google Hypes Up The Pixel Launch, Posts Multiple #TeamPixel Images
The new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be launched on October 4th and the anticipation is increasing every passing day. The Pixel and Pixel XL from 2106 were well received for their camera performance and leaks suggest that the new Pixel smartphones will improve on that performance. There has been a trend of smartphone makers teasing marquee smartphone launches with bits and pieces of information like LG did with the V30. Google, in a new blog post has posted images taken from the Pixel phones and labelled #TeamPixel to remind everyone that the Pixel phones still possess one of the best cameras in the market.
The newly launched Apple iPhone 8 Plus grabbed the headlines when DXOmark rated its cameras as the best smartphone camera in the world. Last year, during the launch of the Pixel and Pixel XL, Google showed off the DXOmark rating of the Pixel phones as the best rated smartphone cameras. The baton was then passed on to the HTC U11 which was launched in early 2017. This carefully timed blog post might be Google’s strategy of reminding everyone about the cameras on last year’s Pixel smartphones and hyping up the launch of the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. It is widely assumed that Google will improve the camera performance. Both the phones will have what Google is calling, “Pixel Cameras.” The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will have a Wide Colour Gamut and Google Imaging Chip, as well as Optical Image Stabilisation. Whether OIS will be present in both the cameras is yet to be seen.
